Cytrax.. By far the best motor for your dollar is the new Nova Max .12 three port... It's faster then the Novarossi NS3 and is legal. Output is almost 1.6hp's... RCNUT... I have both 3 and 5 Rossi black pixy's... I got my 5 port dialed in and it's a monster on the track... That thing makes the sweetest sound like not other .12 motor... Kinda like a big block .15 sound with a hint of snap, crackle and pop to it... Now that three port just won't tune for anything. So what I'm doing is switching out the piston and sleeve to race legal and outlaw. I also have a Mugen MR12, but it can't keep up with the NS3 or Nova Max... The Rossi pixy is like no other .12 motor on the market... Great torque down low and 40-41000 rpm's up top... The more you run it the more power you'll see from it. I can race my 5 port Pixy with any outlaw on the market... It has power everywhere!!! I'm going to try to pick up the Novamax 3 port sometime this month, but I love my 5 port Rossi Pixy and I'll keep it until it dies.. .

RC_Alan, are you using the shim with that Rossi 3 port? Try removing the shim and see if you can get it to top out. That's the only engine I have right now, and I'm keeping up with MR12's and the like. But I'm using a turbo plug.

Give novarossi RR12L3/L5 a try.. top end is unnoticable slower by newest Max 5P (S5 head marking-NSR based) but the low to mid end is noticably faster than that maxes. Price is a lot cheaper as it is just a standard novarossi.

yea in terms of what engine to get I have been looking at the sirio engines, seems that is what has been winning all the races in the TM G4 cars in asia, might as well not change a good thing I guess

Earlier in the from it said that the stock shocks were not up to snuff, I thought the part needed to fix the problem was called a bladder. Sorry if I am not using the right words, but what needs to be done to get the shocks perfect. Thank you

i'm sure your using the right word for in the US, i beleive your referring to the rubber cap that fits between the shock cap and the shock body after you filled up with oil.
have seen people saying they use an ofna part, or mugen mtx 3 part, i am going to try the mugen part my self, sorry dont have part numbers
